Whether it’s our award-winning customer experience or our no pressure promise, there are lots of reasons to choose Skipton.
But there are three that we think are especially important. And our customers tell us they’re important to them, too.
Scroll down to read more about our heritage, community and our mutual roots, and watch as our members explain why Skipton is their good place.
Our Story started in 1853
Great characters drive great stories and customers have taken the lead in ours since 1853. And after helping generations for over 166 years, we’re well placed to help even more in the future. Times change but our commitment stays the same. We’re providing a good place for people’s savings and helping them own homes.
Together we’re stronger
Over one million customers trust us as a good place for their savings and mortgages. But as we continue to grow, we’re still helping individual people towards their dreams of owning their own homes and building better futures. Our customers are part of something bigger but we still treat them as the one in a million.
Our focus is on you
Our mutual roots keep us grounded. They’re what make us different to banks. We don’t answer to shareholders. Instead, we’re shaped by our members who vote for directors and hold the Board to account. When you’re part of a mutual, your opinion matters. It’s called mutuality and it underpins everything we do.
We’re proud to be an award-winning provider of savings and mortgages.
The fact we’ve won many of them because of the fantastic things customers say, makes them even more special.
